Guillermo Leon's story

Leon began a street stall business 25 years ago. He operated this business as an additional way to generate money, striving to support his household. He is 60 years old, single, and lives in Medellín. He has no children.

Due to the high cost of living, Leon needs to generate greater income. Therefore he needs economic support to help him improve the variety of products he sells daily to his customers.

He seeks a loan in order to buy inventory, soda pop, snacks, and basic grocery items. In this way he will be able to stock his business and take on the difficulties like competition in the area.
